The "F" Family - Wollongong Family Photographer

It has taken me a while to blog this session (hands up who else is really slack with blogging) but, this gorgeous family was the winner of a competition I ran in the second half of the last year. At some points we both thought this session was never going to happen, after been rained out about 5 times. Mother nature made up for it though when we finally got to the session as the weather was PERFECT and the sunset was spectacular. We had the best evening running around the beach playing and capture moments of fun and joy. I really loved getting to know them all and capturing some special images for them that are priceless.

Thank you Sonia and family for your support and allowing me to capture your gorgeous family.

Baby "O" - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Life is full, it has so many up's and down's, but bringing a new baby into the world is definitely one of those up's. It is a new chapter in your family story, it is beautiful, surreal, challenging and simply amazing.

There are so many emotions when you are planning or find out you are pregnant, excitement, sheer terror, doubt, confidence, excitement again...it's a rollercoaster, just like life. You start asking yourself, Are we ready? Is now the right time? Can we afford this? Will we be able to give our child the best life? Will I be a good Mum or Dad? Nothing can prepare you for welcoming your first child into your lives, but I can promise you, you will never feel love like you do when you have a child, you will wonder why life felt so full before you had a baby (and what you did with all your time) and you will never, ever regret it.

The Rogers family, you may remember from their maternity session a little while back, you can see that here. They welcomed baby Olivia into the world in late May and we did her Newborn session when she was 3 weeks old and she was a pure joy. Elise and Matt are so cool and calm and absolutely smitten with their precious baby girl. We relaxed around their home, shared stories about birth, childhood, parenthood and giggled at the little facials and sounds Olivia was giving us. It was a true honour and pleasure to witness and capture this new chapter for this gorgeous little family. 

If you are having a baby soon, I would love to chat to you about capturing this very special time. You can contact me here

Rogers Maternity - Shellharbour Maternity and Newborn Photographer

When Elise and Matt first contacted me to capture their maternity and newborn photos, I instantly knew it was going to be fun. 

Elise and Matt decided on Killalea State Park or as us locals know it "The Farm" at Shellharbour for their session. They often enjoy picnic lunch and dinner dates here and felt it was apart of who they are as a couple and now a family.  I loved hearing how they met, about their first, second and third dates and who they would be if they were super heroes. We also had some laughs with some of the answers! 


Thank you Elise and Matt for a fun afternoon, stay tuned for their newborn images! Special thanks to Paris and Al for the referral, I seriously appreciate the support.

Sibling fun - Southern Highlands Family Photographer

They fight, they squabble, they laugh, they love, they are siblings. 
 

Justine contacted me to capture these two gorgeous kiddos playing and having fun together, as brother and sisters do (when they are not fighting). One day they will be older and arguing over who's turn it is to empty the dishwasher, cook dinner or take the car. We headed to their family property on the outskirts of Mittagong, NSW where they will one day soon build their dream home. I loved that they chose here for their family session, as it will always hold a special place in the family and it shows what their property looked like before the brick and mortar. I believe in creating a space for little ones to be their cheeky selves, where they can be silly, have fun and well, be kids. This is what documenting childhood is all about, capturing them, being them, being kids. 

I believe all families should have tangible memories printed and filling photo albums and walls. If you believe this to, I would love to chat to you more about how we can make that happen. Get in touch here

Baby M - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

Newborn sessions capture those life changing chapters in a family's story. If you think about it, our lives are story books, with each moment or adventure adding a chapter and those everyday mundane moments are the beautifully written paragraphs in those chapters. 

In home newborn sessions create a chapter through images, they capture the home where you first bought your child home to, the place where many first happen, the place where you bond and will watch them grow. It is the place you will never forget and will always be connected to because of what small moments happen there. Having your newborn images in your homes creates a tangible memory of these moments, one day that might be all that is left. 

Relaxed, love filling newborn images that are real are what I strive to give families for their stories.  Contact me here if you would like to chat about how I can create images like this for you.

Baby 'N' - Wollongong Newborn Photographer

In the hills of Wollongong, NSW lives a beautiful and fun family of 5 who I caught up with to capture their life with their newest family member. 

The D family welcomed me into their beautiful family home to capture their newest little babe in a lifestyle newborn session. I love these sessions, they are in the comfort of your own home where everyone is relaxed and usually more themselves. I really love capturing everyday moments and what life is like within newborn sessions. We played games, shopkins monopoly, tickled and tackled dad and chatted about life and our babes. 

It is true what they say, the days are long but the years are quick and one day all our children will have left of us is memories and photos so be sure you get in them. 

Thank you D family for welcoming me into your home and being yourselves. 

If you would like to capture some memories of your beautiful family in your home, I would love to hear from you. I also love to travel! You can chat to me here
